Students calculate area under a curve using Riemann Sums. In this calculus lesson, students investigate the integral through estimation and calculation. They compare their approximate answer to their true answer.
In this circuits learning exercise, students answer 25 questions about passive integrator circuits and passive differentiator circuits given schematics showing voltage. Students use calculus to solve the problems.
In this capacitance learning exercise, students solve 19 problems about capacitance, voltage, electric charge and Ohm's Law. They use calculus to solve some of the problems and they are given equations used to solve different capacitance problems.
Students calculate the maxima and minima of quadratic equations. In this calculus lesson, students apply the derivatives by finding the maxima and minima using real life application. They solve optimization using the derivative. 
For this electromagnetism and electromagnetic induction worksheet, students answer 11 questions using calculus to determine things such as magnetic flux and wave output.
Students define the different methods used for optimizing a particular element of a problem. In this optimization problem lesson, students optimize appropriate details of a problem using data collection, algebra, technology, and/or calculus. Students also complete the inquiry-based worksheets included with the lesson.
In this inductors instructional activity, students solve 11 problems using calculus in order to find inductance, changes in polarity and inductance, and what occurs when saturation is reached.
Young scholars derive functions given a limit. In this calculus lesson, student define the derivative of f at x=a, knowing the derivative is a point or just a number. This assignment requires students to work independently as much as possible.
Students discuss the following topics of Calculus: The Tangent Line Problem, The Area Problem, and Exercises. They find limits graphically and numerically. Students write a mathematical autobiography, they write their earliest memories of mathematics or numbers.
In this solar flare reconstruction worksheet, students read about the 'saturation' point of satellite detectors when solar flares are at their most intense phase of brightness. Students are given x-ray flare data and they re-plot the data to estimate the peak of intensity. They create 2 exponential functions to fit the data and estimate the peak intensity and time. Students use calculus to integrate one of the functions and calculate the total energy radiated by the flare.
Students use the derivative and integral to solve problems involving areas. For this calculus lesson, students calculate the area under a curve as they follow a robot off road making different curves along the drive. They use Riemann Sums and Trapezoidal rules to solve the problem.
Students read about AP calculus online. In this calculus lesson, students learn real life usage for calculus. They read about instructors and their experience teaching and incorporating calculus into the real world.
Pupils practice sample questions from the AP Calculus Exam. They solve calculus problems involving bounded regions, integration, derivatives, and limits. They then answer free response and multiple choice questions on the above mentioned topics.
Young scholars review and analyze topics needed to be successful in calculus. In this precalculus lesson plan, students review the unit circle and its properties. The trigonometric ratios and its identities.
Young scholars investigate the fundamental theorem of calculus. In this calculus lesson, students derive the fundamental theorem of calculus. They differentiate between the first and second theorem.
Young scholars calculate the volume of solids. In this calculus instructional activity, students apply the Disk and Washer Method to solve for the volume of three dimensional objects. They calculate the volume caused by rotation that create sections that are perpendicular to the axis of rotation.
Students use the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus to solve problems. In this calculus activity, students use the TI to solve the graphing porting of the problem. They practice graphing functions and discuss their place in the real world.
Solve problems using the fundamental theorem. In this calculus lesson, students solve problems using theorems and proving theorems. They derive the fundamental theorem as they study it.
Students calculate the area under a curve. In this calculus lesson plan, students use Riemann sums to find and approximate the area under a curve. They use the derivative and differential equations to solve.
Students investigate an article on local linearity. In this calculus lesson, students read about the application of math in the real world. They gain insight from the teachers view of how to teach and relate the topic to the real world.
